This struggle to end the apartheid occupation of Palestinians, is deeply connected to our collective struggle here in the U.S. to end the criminalization, incarceration and deportation of Black, Indigenous, and immigrants. This is what globalized settler colonialism & imperialism looks like. We must resist together!
I am writing you with an invitation to partner with me as I join a delegation to Palestine and Israel this May. This unique delegation will focus on human rights issues surrounding incarceration and the political persecution of human rights defenders in the larger context of the ongoing and unjust occupation. Not only is this delegation unique because of its focus, but also because of the commitment required of participants to ongoing advocacy work together.
